Weston (WAOW) -- A Weston man is facing several felony charges for allegedly stabbing a woman to death in April.

Prosecutors filed the charges against 43-year-old David H. Morris.

He's accused of fatally stabbing Renee Hindes inside a Weston apartment.

Court records say Hindes called police on April 23 because of Morris' behavior. When police arrived and knocked on the door, they say Morris told them there was no reason for law enforcement to be there and he was just boiling silverware.

After several attempts to speak to Morris, police say they began to hear screaming inside the apartment and tried to force their way in. They eventually used a sledgehammer to get in.

Police say when they got the door open Morris ran directly at them with a large knife.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice says officers discharged their weapons, hitting Morris. He was taken to the hospital.

Morris has not been officially charged, but prosecutors have filed several charges including intentional homicide. No future court dates have been set.

This story will be updated.
